republicans argue saying the death battle has been won and done and reports the white house considers it is $1.5 trillion from completing whatever debt reduction deal is out there including $1.3 trillion in sequestered cuts. as they move that deadline so the battle has been won. that has raise a lot of concern. it hasn't even been waged war started. that could be a problem. dagen: we heard on that note because this is a growing chorus in the last few weeks, heard from investors and economists that if people start to think that congress and the lawmakers are not serious about tackling this than the market could move against the white house and democrats in the way of significantly higher interest rates if people believe we don't really care about our deficits and the debt. neil: on a republican and
11:05 am
democratic side, it is -- hit this appeared. if you say and long enough, it is not a problem. when you are adding $4 billion a day to the debt it is a problem. later today we will get the treasury releasing a statement about january revenue data into the government and a lot more courtesy of tax hikes, courtesy of the improving market and people will see is on that and don't have to do anything because is fine but as someone who has to lose 100 lbs. losing 10 pounds and say i can stop. [talking over each other] dagen: relief that people don't feel -- [talking over each other] dagen: pouring into all these nations overseas. neil: easy for you and difficult for me but i do think that is my biggest worry on the right and left that they have lost the zeal to do something and i do think regardless who you voted for it is fair to say one of the
11:06 am
consequences of this election was tight in taxes on the well to do, that was the beginning but giving up the fight on spending was not an that is a leap for the president to assume this battle has been won when we have an even -- connell: i'm starting a bunch of sentences with is just not paul krugman saying this. east of the people left of the president but it is a more, quote, mainstream argument. neil: they phrase it in a way to say the debt to gdp, overall growth compared to the amount of red ink we have, the forces of neptune compared to the forces of pluto, you can characterize it anyway you want, on pluto, the fact of the matter is it is not real and disguising it by saying in the scheme of things, 16 fully in dollars in red ink when you talk about a growing economy is not such a big deal,
11:07 am
$16 trillion, it is money we owe. it is the second-largest component of the budget. neil: we will talk about it. never has the opposition speaker had some much pressure put on him not only because he is speaking in english and spanish which is interesting, but because many argue he can put voice and reason to this debate without putting people to sleep. what it will mean is we have given up that fight and if republicans feel is not working. dagen: he also needs to lay out the case that if president obama is going to argue for more spending, stimulus spending still at 8% unemployment because we didn't spend enough money and he is going to reiterate the same things we heard for years now, infrastructure spending, education, energy, but he is going to need to lay out the
11:08 am
fact that this is not working and drive it home to the american people and take the far side -- neil: history suggests, his inaugural address suggests he won't but all trains turn. i will say there is an argument that now is not the time to cut. it was apparently the time to hike taxes but that is okay. a couple years i can understand we were in dire circumstances that was not the time to cut. when is the time to cut? if times are better, still not, when we are really booming you don't worry about cutting because whenever need we have to cut. i would like if you get a big raise at work or move to a new job of a sudden you are earning more money so that the dutch doesn't seem as worrisome because you have more money never mind you have your visa and mastercard credit line back up to the max, you feel you can handle it better because you have more money but no guarantee you always line doesn't make it visible to those credit lines. that is the reality check it is incumbent, president and marco
11:09 am
rubio or anyone to do so and that is where we failed. when we talk about it like there isn't spending problem, there's a very big problem when $1 trillion more is going out and is coming in. you can call it a ham sandwich but it is a very bad issue. unless we address it and soon we will pay dearly and fast. connell: thank you as always. neil: you don't mean it. connell: not really. [talking over each other] neil: watches bret baier. dagen: he would watch if he on. [talking over each other] connell: pretty good guess line. neil: good guests lined up? connell: who knows not a plan that. is a dwarf planet. bernard: 1 not a real anchor. [talking over each other] neil: i didn't want to be with you guys but that was day. neil: when in doubt call him:.
11:10 am
connell: have a great day. dagen: how could the president move markets in his speech tonight? the vice chairman at errol investments joins us from chicago. if he doesn't laugh have to cut back, how would the markets react? >> i don't think it will be a problem. there's not much optimism on this speech. people like washington to get ahold of this issue but that is not driving a market. dagen: when will they be forced to do something about it?
11:11 am
will not be a free ride forever. >> that is the problem and that is the way i described it. your children and your and my grandchildren are very good credit. they have the ability to pay back a lot of money. even though the debt is $16 trillion, we can probably handle that but it is going to hurt our grandchildren. it is like a kid who has a very rich father who runs a big credit-card bill. his father is good for it. there's no short-term indication the markets will prevent us from borrowing. dagen: what about the shift we are starting to see in a big way out of bondss and into stocks which we have been talking about for some years now because interest rates have gone so low or been so low for so long do you think that is sustainable? >> that is a very important point. people have been making money on bond accounts.
11:12 am
and his interest rates drop the value of the bond those ups of people have been able to exxon and to present for 3% on their bonds but that will start to change. interest rates will start to go up and people are already starting to take their money out of bonds and put them in stocks, not just individuals that begins to tuition like pension funds and endowment and insurance companies so we are starting to see the great rotation back in stocks and that will have a big impact. dagen: at one point they higher interest rates hurt stocks? at what level would you watch the ten year and then become cautious on the stock market? >> that is a great point. in the short-term is going to go slowly so we will go from 2% on the ten year to 3%, 4% over a couple of years and that kind of impact we don't think will be that bad for the stock market. we think people will move out of bonds into stocks that companies can handle that particularly because most companies have fixed their debt or have a relatively small amount of short-term floating-rate debt that is not going to go up that
11:13 am

next level, should the government be buying everyone computers? should the government be buying everyone all the latest technology so we are all wired? how about ipads? does the government needed by everyone and ipad? where does this end? this is ridiculous. dagen: we have found out the number of people that are probably not eligible for it. you are not satisfied with that, that that will weed out several people? >> that is certainly a step in the right direction. the broader point is more of a philosophical one. why is the government find people free cell phones in the first place?
11:37 am
that is the question. i understand it is great if people have them. it is great if people have ipads. it is great if people have desktop computers. it is not the government's responsibility. dagen: they may have taken advantage of them. >> they have a responsibility to follow the law. i think the government needs to do a better job when it starts a program like this of making sure it is run properly. if you are putting this in place because you think someone needs a line at home so they can get in touch with 911, let's give our phones not only call 911.

>> i really felt this way. i have two younger children and a second generation of children. don't all the receipts on my children's laugh and said you pay for my trip, that would be a moral. that is what our generation is doing. barack obama is a one-person all-americans vote for or against. he is the only president we have. he should say tonight this is a great moral issue of our time. dennis: if you were advising president obama, he cannot possibly -- we had $10 trillion. >> i think you would share the
12:08 pm
guilt of all of us. they used to call on all politicians. still my inspiration. both parties are guilty. george bush took a trillion dollar surplus left to have by bill clinton and he is my friend from college, but i say this, he left us with red ink and then barack obama increased it. dennis: the most fiscally the most irresponsible president of all time. thank you. >> thank you. cheryl: all right. dennis: he is good. cheryl: small businesses are hoping that the president
12:09 pm
addresses some of their problems. anticipating better business conditions in the next six months despite higher taxes. president of little greek restaurant. how are you? >> hey, cheryl. cheryl: i am curious what you want to hear from the president tonight. >> i would say as i look at my fellow restaurant out there, we see a very weak recovery. we are not seeing the real pro-business, pro- growth strategies. there is also a lot of tension out there. small businesses are the lifeblood of this country.
12:10 pm
we are not really feeling that right now. cheryl: what about healthcare concerns? obamacare. the rush on this is we have 13 million employees. we employ 10% of the population. our profit per employee is -- we are trying to figure out what is in there and how much it will cost and how we are going to do it. it has become quiteea big battle. all of my partners in the restaurant industry, i have folks that are looking to open another restaurant and they were going to put them over the 50 employees limit so they are not going to do it. cheryl: they are not going to hire. >> exactly. we have to watch our margin.
12:11 pm
they may take employees and put them below 30 hours. we the people working in not making as much money as possible. cheryl: very tax friendly and business friendly state. >> we feel that we go to states that is a good business friendly environment. it is just a very different operating environment out there. it allows us to get the stores open more quickly and efficiently. cheryl: i am curious about demand. we think things are picking up. are you seeing better business?
12:12 pm
>> well, i think when i talk to my fellow ceos and presidents, we are seeing trends that are positive. i guess it is less worse. when i met with some of the industry economist, they are projecting a very flat year. they are worried that if some outside shot comes in, this economy could leg very quickly. this is a mixed bag deal. it is a very dicey deal. cheryl: i may steal that. thank you. appreciate it. good to have you on the show again. dennis: gasoline prices spiking to new highs for the day. we have a way you may profit on the pain.

12:17 pm
we cannot push through on a meaningful basis. nicole: that is true. most of the traders continue to fail we will break those all-time highs. i thought maybe you were saying 14,000. we are sitting right now of about 35 points. that is a gain of eight quarter of 1%. oil services are doing well. bank stocks are doing very well today. barclays would be another name. you are seeing some nice moves there. the vix, the fear index is taking a breather. oil and gold hovering around the same picture. the trend remains to the upside.
12:18 pm
back to you. >> corn has been up. it has been. today and yesterday, corn down. now below seven dollars a bushel. that is a key area of support for corn. today we are crashing through it. take a look at what high corn prices have done to ethanol producers. we have 20 ethanol plants that are shut down. more ethanol plants cannot survive with corn prices at the level they are at right now.
12:19 pm
high oil prices already a factor for those oil companies. oil prices up 6% so far this year. sandra: take a look at what that is doing for the consumer filling up their tank at the gas pump. hitting $3.60 for a regular gallon of gasoline. that is compared to $3.30 just one month ago. you want to look also at the stock market. right now the rise we have seen in oil and gas prices is working in favor of the big oil companies. we have seen them come down considerably. exxon mobil up just a fraction today. cheryl: time to make money with

charles payne. he is following up with tesla motors. charles: i wonder if they name it after the investor. they are always wearing for a fight. they got one with the "new york times." the car did not get the range that they thought it would. this guy is not ashamed. he treated one thing about the "new york times" article. they did not charge nothing up. it is bogus. i think he has a legitimate claim here. it is under pressure today. if it survives this latest attack, this could go up one
12:21 pm
higher. dennis: it would send out price popping. it is up 30-40% from october. charles: to your point, if i am not in the stock right now, on a dip, i would consider. cheryl: tesla motors and charles payne. dennis: all right. we have a guy who says there is a way to make money off resignation. cheryl: and luxury stock play. we have an analyst coming up and, yes, we are talking about the diamond market. we will be right back. ♪

12:27 pm
expect? down 26%. what is happening? i think investors had a very strong growth outlook. with the growth slowing growth investors have pulled out of the stock. now it is actually a little more fairly valued. cheryl: let's talk about the new ceo harvey cantor. if you look at blue nile, that is a little risky for many people. they did have an earnings problem the year before. they are doing some new
12:28 pm
products. the only thing people have to remember is blue nile actually benefits when prices are down. they were down all last year. i think that their value actually fits with the consumer mood right now. big news from tiffany when same-store sales came out. you have this fourth quarter guidance now. >> there is a strange dynamic and jewelry, especially diamonds. when those prices are up, it seems like the jewels sparkle a little more in the showroom window. the expensive rings look
12:29 pm
relatively cheaper to the consumer. now we are in a value play. blue nile customers are looking for deals, essentially. cheryl: that is interesting. there are two more names, socks and macy's. neiman marcus has jewelry sales down 29% in 2009. the department stores, is that a better player in jewelry moving forward? >> department stores, in my view, are more a fashion plate for jewelry. i do not see them as a destination to get statement jewelry. it is a different niche. for their diamond jewelry, it is much more engagement driven.
12:30 pm
blue nile is trying to branch out to fashion. cheryl: if you want to buy an engagement ring, maybe online shopping not the way to go. good point. paul, thanks. >> thank you. dennis: voting against mutual shares against the dell bios offer. apple shares down almost 5%. cheryl: we are talking about this with local. hitting that 14,000 level. one of our favorite heirs says there is an upside here. ♪

12:42 pm
amy: those who are contenders to be the next pope, a cardinal from ghana says he thinks it would be time for a pope to come from asia or africa. he said the younger churches have become mature enough to offer a pope and it would be a good thing because frankly between a half and two-thirds of the catholic are of the southern churches. in the meantime for the first time we're hearing there could be an american pope although most people think it is not terribly likely. a lot of experts say probably the vatican does not want a pope from the world's remaining superpower. the process of choosing the pope will begin around the middle of march when the conclave will

happen. it was received by vatican officials that pope benedict xvi is have a pacemaker for many years and the batteries changed just three months ago, but that is not the reason for his resignation and that this whole situation has not impacted his work especially at the time with the adjustment made to the pacemaker. today caught up with what they had to say, what their impressions were and their reaction to this news including a young belgian man who wants to be a priest one day, here's what he had to say. >> i really hope it is not european to make clear the church is more than just rome, it is something worldwide. it is not only european or rome for italian, it is the whole world. amy: cheryl, these young people were saying to us today it is
